The sailing season just begun for the beneficiaries of JUST for Smiles – and everyone is already looking forward to it.
After wintering and a thorough overhaul, our five catamarans in the ports of Rolle, Bouveret, Estavayer-le-Lac and Neuchâtel, as well as in Zurich, have been relaunched, ready to welcome our beneficiaries for the summer season. We wish them a sunny and exciting season until the end of October!
And this sailing season will once again be marked by a highlight on Lake Geneva for our foundation. Namely, our heartfelt partnership with the Bol d’Or Mirabaud 2023 – the famous regatta, from 9 to 11 June. This is the second time that its organisers will welcome us to the Rade de Genève with our catamaran based in Rolle.
Showing our know-how to the public
The BOM organisers are offering us a great opportunity to publicise JUST for SMILES’ commitment to the inclusion of people with disabilities. It is also an opportunity to show the general public and sailing professionals – like last year’s British champion Shirley Robertson – our know-how in terms of accessibility to sports and leisure activities for people with multiple disabilities.
Beneficiaries of our partner institutions in the Geneva region will be offered excursions on our catamaran in the Rade during the regatta, and JUST for SMILES employees will be happy to answer the public. (ew)On your waistcoats, get set, sail!
